Our food was not hot when
Our food was not hot when it came out but they had problems with one side of the oven that night.The waitress looked after us well which made up for the wait for the second attempt for hot food.
We love going to San Remo and do so on a regular bases. The food is and service is always great!!!
I have celiac and I'm very impressed by the thoughtfulness of San Remo. The sample plate that comes out with the bread is an excellent idea as I do not feel left out. Also your menu is very celiac friendly.
Keep up the good work. We will be back very soon!!

We were there for my sister's
We were there for my sister's birthday and I mentioned that in my Open Table reservation and was pleased when as soon as we arrived, they asked who was having the birthday. The pace was relaxed, the food very delicious, with the exception of the seafood rissoto which was too salty to enjoy. Try the chicken involiti (sp?), port soaked figs and chocolate lava cake.

San Remo has potential
This place has charm. Only one server who waited tables(drinks and food), checked in new diners, and collected the bill. Explains why no one answered the phone when I tried to make a reservation. Had to make the reservation on-line since no one answered the phone for that day, tedious and would not do that if I wanted to make a last minute reservation from my Blackberry.

spinach salad with chcken breast
I found the size of this lunch entree a little too small. I was expecting a large bowl with lots of spinach, etc. Instead, it was a flat plate.

Our first time at San Remo and we went for Sunday Pasta night. The restaurant is small, not as spread out as we're used to, it was busy but not full. The pasta portions are not huge, but still a decent size and very good. The chicken parm was one of the best I have ever had. Service was good and attentive 4 staff serving and we were in and out under an hour. Will be back for sure.

A nice little Italian gem!
This Italian-themed restaurant is located in a little strip mall across the Safeway in Garrison Woods. The decor has some nice blue and dark wood with hardwood floors, so the noise levels can go up if the restaurant is full. We shared some bruschetta for an appetizer, and I had an Italian sausage & chicken penne & my sister had a seafood linguini. We also had a couple of glasses of nice Spanish white wine, and also shared a lemon shortbread dessert. Our server was friendly, although the service was at times slow, but we ended up having a relaxed pace for lunch. The food was amazing - we loved the bruschetta!

This was my third time at this restaurant. The deal coupon on TravelZoo was a great savings that is why I keep going back. But I must mention that each time I go back the final bill is different even though I am buying the same things each time.
When I called in to reserve, I tried to get noon for that day and she said they were booked but didn't give me another time close to that time that they had open, had to get that online reservation.
Service was slow but was compensated with free coffee and tea. Which was nice but the amount of time it took the beverages comp just really make up for the time lost. But at least she acknowledged the problem.
Thank you again.

Creative food choices and flexible for those with dietary restrictions. A favourite restaurant for sure.

Pasta was superb, Gnocchi wasn't
As per usual, we head down to our neighborhood restaurant for some good food. Our son loves the gnocchi but this week it was very tough, barely any sauce, cold, and kind of hard to swallow. Hopefully, this was just an off night for the kitchen. Pasta was superb!!

Their Sunday $10 past night
Their Sunday $10 past night was excellent! They had a great variety of choices, and the portions were perfect. We'll definitely go back!!

Went here for the first time last week with a friend. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very peaceful. We were on a time crunch and it did take longer than we'd hoped for the bill to arrive, but other than that it was fantastic. I will likely eat here again and would reccommend it to friends.

Sunday night special
We were very pleased with this restaurant, the service was friendly and the children's meals came quickly which I am sure many parents would appreciate. Our meals took longer ,however we had brought colouring material to keep the children amused.The food was priced right and tasted very good.
My husband and daughter(we were a table of 4grown-ups and 2 children) did however think that there was too much salt in their meal.

Great pasta night
It is a nice restaurant and the pasta night is great value.

Good lunch at San Remo
I like this place as a lunch spot. The lunch menu is great, the salads delicious and you get your food in a timely fashion. Service is good and attentive and the atmosphere is friendly. San Remo is always on my short list of places for lunch!

We ate at San Remo last Monday night, and sat outside on the patio. The wait staff was tremedous - they had menu information and suggestions, and seemed to be on top of everything without being intrusive. Overall the food was good - Sunday and Monday happen to be 10.00 pasta nights, and there is a wide range of pasta choices. Salads were also very good. We had eaten at the MacKenzie Towne location a week previous, and there are some inconsistancies between the 2, though the menu is the same - for instance the way the beets were presented in the beet salad (sliced vs. whole) and the inclusion/exclusion of nuts in the same salad. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

Great Food but Understaffed
Food was excellent but the service was a little slow. Our server was very nice and did the best he could but there were only a couple of servers working a full house. As a result we were halfway through our main course before we received our wine. Definitely try to marscopone for desert - delicious is an understatement!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Sunday/Monday $10 pasta night offers great food at exceptionally reasonable prices. Great Tomato soup; always a wonderful Caesar salad, and my Carbonara was yummy and just the right size. My vegan friend really enjoyed the Primavera, and when we had an order glitch, they fixed it without question and without charge. Professional and classy.
A perennial favorite.

I'm not usually a fan of Italian restaurants but we had a gift cert. and were able to make a last minute reservation Sunday evening. It was $10 pasta night which is a great deal. I'd definitely bring the family here another time for this. Tonight we were dining on the gift certificate so we splurged a little and opted for the regular fare. I had the halibut, very tasty and not overcooked. My husband was delighted with his chicken and prawns. Decent selection of wine and the menu even offers suggestions for pairing with the various menu items. Service was friendly and attentive, nice decor in the restaurant.

Need to redo the washrooms
Need to redo the washrooms - there is only one person at a time that can use them and you have to watch as people enter and exit the washroom to see if available otherwise spend time standing and waiting.

Six of us went for an early
Six of us went for an early meal after an afternoon of theatre. Our server, Yvonne, was cheerful, accommodating and anticipated our needs. Her recommendations for pasta were aces! Meals were served hot, and everyone commented how delicious their choice was. We left sated and satisfied. We will return.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great and I enjoyed the ambiance. The only thing that was not up to par was the service. It was just a bit slow. Slow for the food to come, slow to have the table cleared, slow to get more water. The restaurant was not busy to start with, but was fairly busy by the time we left, and there was only one waitress on duty.

This was our second visit
This was our second visit and well worth it. I have a food sensitivity to gluten and was pleased to find that the menu accommodates this issue. Definitely a neighborhood gem worth returning again and again.
Service was exceptional, attentive but not intrusive. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and food preparation.

I was meeting a business associate and wanted somewhere classy but not too "up market".
San Remo is in my neighbourhood and fit the bill perfectly!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
San Remo had great food, attentive service and a quiet atmosphere that made conversations easy. I think it's a neighbourhood gem that could rival any of the downtown restaurants!
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Feel good, comfort
Had a wonderful meal. Took a guest who has never been there. Thought the menu had good variety. Wait for food was longer than usual but got to the table piping hot. Overall a good experience.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Six of us had a very good lunch at San Remo. The service was very good as was the food. One small criticism is that the salad dressing has too much salt. I have mentioned this to the cook before.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed the beet salad and the risotto the other evening. Both very tasty. Smallish portions but I like that. Very friendly server.
